On screen, they claim a 1970 copyright, but their copyright claim says it was made in 1966 and copyrighted 1971. Since the original title was "House of the Black death," which was released in 1966 WITH a valid copyright notice, (see attachment) this retitling and registration strike me as a bit bizarre. Which, if any, claim is valid?

I'd like to know too. I uploaded BLOOD OF THE MAN DEVIL here believing it was pd, and I do try to be careful. As well as I can remember there was no notice on the copy I put up. I hope it not another case similar to NOT OF THIS EARTH (again, one of mine.) So the question is, should it stay or should it go?
